if I add the -P option to portmaster, and postmaster decides to re-install pkg, I get the following:
Installed packages to be REMOVED:
Number of packages to be removed: 1
The operation will free 13 MiB.
[1/1] Deinstalling pkg-1.13.2...
You may need to manually remove...
I performed this in a jail: # pkg upgrade python27 python36 librsvg2 gnutls (These packages are here just as examples, because this happens with any kind of package, since some time. Everything seems to work further fine, but I wonder what this is and how to fix it.)
Here's the start of...
I needed to install Tensorflow 2.1 for a project. Tensorflow is not available in the packages and the port is a very old version of Tensorflow (1.4 if I remember well).
So I tried to compile it from source. And, actually, it seems to be possible to compile Tensorflow for FreeBSD...
My Macmini running catalina died so i installed Freebsd on it,
and now i want to copy a list of packages installed on my Macbook air running freebsd to the macmini
Should i use pkg prime-list to generate a list of the packages i installed on the macbook air,

When i run pkg update i get an error saying Newer FreeBSD version for package p5-Tk-TableMatrix
To ignore this error set IGNORE_OSVERSION=yes

I am using poudriere on a FreeBSD 11.3 system. I want to remove a single file from the repository. Is this possible? I know I can use pkg to delete the file from the system, but I also want to remove it from the repository.
I'm running 12.0-RELEASE-p9 and I cannot find any package for the stable version of PostgreSQL 12:
% pkg search postgresql12
pgtcl-postgresql12-2.1.1_2 TCL extension for accessing a PostgreSQL server (PGTCL-NG)

A few days ago, calibre went missing from the pkg repo; this was due to an upgrade from version 3.xx to version 4.xx, so technically understandable, even if it was unfortunate for users.
Today I wanted to reinstall falkon (due to some library updates, related to other packages on my system)...
Are 90kB/s-500kB/s speeds expected while downloading packages with pkg? If not, are the geo-ip mirrors for the repositories being properly resolved? I have two FreeBSD installations in central Europe and looks like I am using some remote repository.
I found this issue in the forum...
I see in the Handbook: Tracking a Development Branch that you checkout the source for STABLE to switch. Does it work the same way if you use pkg instead of ports? If not, what's the upgrade procedure? I want to track STABLE so I can hopefully have a working Bluetooth stack, as well as eventually...
I still need to use php56 for my whmcs website because modules are encoded for php5 and I don't have idea how to install it on FreeBSD 12.
Actually I need a way to downgrade pkg for latest version of php5.
After encountered a bunch of not working pkg-s and other constant problems with them I became curios about how unrightfully forgotten BPI works?
Can someone summarize the mechanics?
What can be made to create something like BPI with current ports\pkg system?
If I installed wget from the pkg
pkg install wget
and then decided to installing again from port
make install clean
then what would happened???
Will the port installation overwrite the pkg installation? Or duplicated wget installation?
As some may know, I really hate having to deal with updates when I have other stuff to take care of. It's especially frustrating since I'm pretty much isolated from threats from the net, and I have decent backups to recover from if need be. Thanks to this article...
I would like to share an article about FreeBSD pkg(8) package manager.

I have run into a strange little problem today. I have previously been using www/qutebrowser on my computer. I used it just yesterday. When I came home today and booted my system, it was magically gone. Perhaps I am just retarded and uninstalled it, so I tried installing, but...
